What is an "A-G Approved" Course?
Courses from California high schools and online schools used to satisfy the "A-G" subject requirements must be approved by UC and appear on the institution's "A-G" course list. These courses are to be academically challenging, involving substantial reading, writing, problem solving, and laboratory work (as appropriate), and they must show serious attention to analytical thinking, factual content, and developing students' oral and listening skills.
 
New courses may only be submitted to UC for "A-G" review from February 1 - September 15 each year.
